You don’t have to know, at this moment in time, HOW you’re going to manage something in the future – you just have to believe deep inside, that when you get there – you WILL know. When you believe this, things truly get easier, stress disappears, worry subsides, and your confidence sky-rockets!
This belief comes from trusting that you already have everything you need – innate wisdom, strength, courage and resilience, so that you can meet ANY challenge head-on and come through with flying colours!
Do you think this way?
Do you understand who you really are?
How different would your life be if the answer to both these questions was ….’YES!’ ???
So, something happens in your life and you feel anxious, upset, angry even – maybe you get your redundancy notice, or your boyfriend is being obnoxious, or a friend lets you down.
Your reaction is right there – on the tip of your tongue; you can feel the emotion taking over, the outrage building in your thoughts. You open your mouth to react – to let it all out – the unfairness, the angry words, the ‘poor me’,,…..
….and there it is – between the happening and your response to it,
The space of one breath.
The space between.
Take your breath – breathe deeply in and breathe it out.
And then CHOOSE.
Choose your attitude to the action. Are you going to continue down the line of outrage? upset? anger? Are you going to let yourself feel stress or anxiety?
Are you going to be the victim of the actions outside you? OR the one who chooses what way to EXPERIENCE what’s happened?
You have the choice. You can change your attitude to any situation or set of circumstances or action by someone else, at any time. In that space between action and reaction, if you pause and choose wisely, you RESPOND. You tell yourself a different story. ‘Redundancy is an opportunity’, ‘poor behaviour isn’t acceptable’, ‘friends have different priorities’.
You have the power to create a different outcome, a different experience.
In the space between – your choice creates your experience.
YOU create your own reality!!
